A recall is nowhere near the same; it can be initiated based on popular sentiment.

    When does dissent become 'rebellion'.

    IMHO this signals the end of Democracy in Venezuela.

    Dictator Chavez is no different to those right wing Dictator's he so used to rail against.
    Many thanks.

    It appears that the Law, which prohibits religious education during school hours, increases access to education for the poor, and guarantees "education as a universal human right," has been blown up by the right to be about 'taking custody of children'.

    Sounds a bit like 'Death panels' or 'killing Granma'.

    So you think that people rising up against a legally formed government should be legal in the eyes of the government against whom they are rising up?

    He made a point (the US doesn't have a recall process), you tried refuting it ("see: articles of impeachment"), and you were proven wrong. Deal with it.

    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Considering that a recall provision is typically directed at elected representatives of the executive branch, this comment seemed rather purposeless.
